For me, this concept was perfect since my thesis project is an art/design incubator facility. Below is one of my initial sketches showing the entry way to a retail space with a giant wall mural of sketched hands. This becomes a literal translation of art into space and shows the importance of the hand - an artist's most valuable tool.
I was initially inspired by the Leo Burnett Office by Ministry of Design (Singapore)
- Painted mural of the company's founder
And before I knew it, I began to notice all of these other spaces...
School of Life by Susanna Edwards (London, England)
- Hand drawn by Charlotte Mann
The Smokehouse Deli by The Busride (Delhi, India)
- Hand illustrated over a 25 day period
Gift Shop by Belenko (Odessa, Ukraine)
- Painted onto walls and furniture
I find the literal translation of a drawing into space or playing with the concept of 2D versus 3D really intriguing and I also think that it creates quite an impact . What do you think of this trend?
